REVOLTE, is the surprising union between Luc, musician with a classical background and Arnaud, more devoted to the world of Djing. Their association gave birth to the well known duo REVOLTE project associated to the two crash test dummies’ concept.Their musical influences are Funk, Disco, House, Electro Rock, and more precisely the French Touch music that was initiated in the 90 ies. The mix of those different influences and passion formally make the sound of REVOLTE today.
They yet worked with well known artist such as Yann Destal, singer and half MODJO band, on their track “Game for fools”, made an excellent un-official remix of DAFT PUNK, remixing “Voyager”, had been play listed by famous artists in their Dj set as Busy P, Justice, SebastiAn, with their track “Weak generation”. Moreover they have been supported by Alan Braxe, Dax Riders, Danger, Gildas Loec and many others… They both participated to Kitsuné’s Boombox compilation. They are today recognised as the “prodigy” of micro-sampling, creating a unique sound combining musicality and violence, offering a fresh vision of the French touch music. They recently performed a live with powerful beats, full of energy (enlève le AND), and are now ready to do a tour in France, Europe and the rest of the world! Grum, Danger remixed them officially….and to finish they made an official remix for EMI UK on a track of “Kylie Minogue” considered by the specialized press as one of the best electro remix. After Marseille (France) in 2011, the group begins its 2012 tour with the « So French » Party in Paris on the 03/03/12 and continues in Sweden on the 09/05/12 at Gotborg. AND MORE
